So so sorry to hear this. Glad you were able to spend time with him before he passed.


What a lovely picture! And how completely sad. I just keep praying for the Lord to hug poor Beth tight. I wish I could help.


Nathan was a great kid. Please let me know when the funeral is. That makes me so very sad.


Oh, Amy. I am so terribly sorry. I hope you and your family find peace and comfort during this time.

I met Nathan in primary... I was 20 or so and he was 9 or so. Beth, his mom, was a counselor in the primary presidency, I was Nathan's teacher. I was in the phase of my life where I was working out what I did and did not believe testimony-wise. As I toggled the various switches of the gospel in my life, to see what brought light and what did not, that class was one bright light that stayed bright, regardless. Nathan joined the class after I had been "teaching" (egging on might be a more accurate verb really) for a few months. I think he must have thought I was a bit of a wierdo at first, (imagine that). I owe a bit of my soul to those children- they helped me find the light and peace. I also came to adore his Mom at that time. She genuinely liked me, and was an example of what a real beilever was like.

I have loved watching those kids become adults. Nathan's quick humour and unique style... He was fun to be around. Good company. Easy to laugh with, easy to be around. I like him.

My best to your family-


I'm so sorry. How sad. God bless.


I just remembered your blog and am so touched by what you said about Nathan. He liked you Amy. Loved your ways of looking at life and your sense of humor. He always felt comfortable and safe around you and Mike.
Thank you to everyone who responded. Renae, he loved you and Bruce too. John, you are a bright light yourself. Just keep on shining!
My heart is broken but everyone who shows love sustains me. And I know his suffering is over now. All I ever wanted was for him to get well; now Heavenly Father is helping that happen.

I am so very sorry for your loss, you and your family will be in my thoughts.

I'm sooo sorry for your loss! I don't know what i would do if my brother died now. You always expect to have 90 years with someone, it's the worst thing in the world when something like this happens. I just got here via flickr (am trying to set up a blog) and saw your link. I have asthma too. i don't know your or your brother, but i'm crying right now, b/c i know what you must be going thru. my father died last year of a similar thing. i'm so so sorry. Gillian

I'm so very prayers are with you and your family.

I am so sorry to read about your loss. It's been a few months since you've posted and I just want to check in on you and see how you are doing. How are you holding up?

Amy, I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted you to know that I'm so sorry for the loss of your brother-in-law who was obviously a very special man. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love, Heather
